Wankhede Stadium Pitch Report 1st T20: Wankhede Stadium Mumbai Pitch Report IND vs SL Match Tomorrow
The first T20 match of the 3-match T20 series between India and Sri Lanka will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai tomorrow. Both the teams will be looking to start their new year well and the Wankhede pitch has produced some of the best T20 matches in the past.
Hardik Pandya will lead India in this series and it will be interesting to see the Indian team’s approach without veteran players in this format. This home season is very important for the Indian team and they want to start on a positive note.
Sri Lanka’s performance in the T20 format has been full of highs and lows. Dasun Shanaka is the captain and Vanindu Hazaran has got a new vice-captain. This side has shown promise and the players have the ability to outplay any team on their day.
First T20 report from Wankhede ground pitch
The famous Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is once again hosting a T20I tournament after more than three years. T20 matches in Mumbai are always sure to be fun as it has one of the best batting tracks in the country and we can expect the same in this match.
A red-clay surface is used in Wankhede and the track produces a good amount of bounce. Fast bowlers can swing the ball in the early overs of the game. It is a beautiful batting track where batters get full reward for their shots. Short boundaries and a fast outfield make the job very easy for the batters.
A total of 21 IPL 2022 matches were played here, where the average first innings score was 168 runs, but it is safe to say that this score will not be safe at the Wankhede Stadium. The ice factor will play a big role in this match and both captains will chase after winning the toss.
